Total Produce has acquired Utopia UK after the exotic fruit specialist fell into administration earlier this month.

Utopia, which has a turnover of around £25m, sources a wide range of exotic produce from 40 countries around the world. The business will be renamed Total Exotics following the deal.

“This acquisition will provide the opportunity to further increase the Total Produce business and complement its existing activities in this specialist area,” the company said in a statement.

Total Produce is one of Europe’s largest fresh produce companies, with annual sales of €2.5bn.
